  1. Electrical issues

    Hi 49wind - Did you mentioned, that your ampere meter was "clicking"? I've noticed that it does clicking noises (and whips needle from zero to full) if there's a short circuit somewhere in the system. Notice, that there are no fuses for starter, generator nor for the lights. Check all the wiring and replace every suspicious cable. The ones for courtesy lights are the hardest to follow. Unfortunately they are also most prone for short circuit by loosing insulative cover, because they run between the roof and head liner where it gets very hot due the sun.
  2. 230 and trans

    ^ Yes, I kind of understood, the seller is seeking certain audience by using those tags, but if the engine was not fast/reliable enough for a 40's Dodge (in his opinion), how come to push it for a "rod" ? (I just hope the poor six will find it's way back to 40's mopar car - IMO it would serve the best there) I knew these were used for industrial applications, also in forklifts, but the tractor was news for me. Which brand farm tractors have had 230 six?
  3. Sold for $1226 - Looks like a great deal
  4. 53 DeSoto on FB

    It says "closed group" and "Join this group to see the discussion, post and comment." Probably you need to be a member of this FB "group" to be able to view any content there? I'm not good with FB, though. What if you download a couple of photos and cut&paste the listing here?

    "Rat rod mopar antique mopar flat head tractor motor 3.8" ...???
  6. Alternative replies: a.) Yes - a very rare accessory in 1938 b.) Yes, it definetely drops the value of the car below $2000 c.) Yes, but I'd rather had the cylinder head instead of the shock
  7. 1942 chrysler windsor

    Congratulations for the awesome find, Monsieur Adrian! I like the 1942 C the best of all 40's Mopars, it has clean design, the best looking front end and the coolest brightwork. The 40's Mopars drive as good as any 50's US car and the flathead engines are reliable as work horse. Grab it, enjoy it, and keep us posted! The P15-D24 forum is the best web page for any informatio or advise you possible will ever need. Welcome to our crowd!
  8. Old car heaven

    Mouth watering Mopars, indeed! Great collection. Would be very interesting auction to attend.
  9. Interesting photos I have run across.

    Never seen such set up live. Would you care to share the story behind this picture? I'd be interested. The lathe is small, for a particular purpose? I guess it takes power from the car transmission? Is there a special clutch or do you need to jack up the rear end while turning...?
  10. How to keep the mice away?

    Also Hemmings covered the accident. https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2017/08/09/five-alarm-fire-causes-extensive-damage-at-country-classic-cars/?refer=news
  12. Detail question on the wheel cylinder rubber sealings

    After searching the cabinets I found my parts book. Looks like there's only one part number for the piston and piston seal, the cylinder end boot as well. Thus the conclusion would be the rubber sealings must be the same for all rear, front upper & lower cylinders, see below page...
  13. Detail question on the wheel cylinder rubber sealings

    Thanks Tim, Yes, mine is the common 4D sedan, thus 11" drums. Now that I take a closer look, the Dorman 12222 says bore 1 1/8, all other say 12" drum, thus the first one would fit all my wheel cylinders. Thanks again, Pekka
  14. Detail question on the wheel cylinder rubber sealings

    It's been years I opened the brake drum, thus I cannot recall the dimensions in detail. The question is; Are the front wheel upper and lower cylinder diameters the same? (thus the rubber sealings would be the same size) See the below "RockAuto" catalog; E.g. WK112 kit would fit "front upper" and rear wheel cylinder, but not "front lower"...? I see front lower has some extra metal pins, but those have much longer life time than the rubber. Thus the question is; If I simply keep 2-3 sets of Dorman 12222 or Raybestos WK112 in by garage drawer, am I equipped to service whichever wheel in my D24? Thanks, Uncle-Pekka
